A sly dig at the 'juvenile delinquent' genre
30 September 2002 | by IslandiaSee all my reviews

A deliciously sly dig at juvenile delinquent movies and gangster films. The delinquents in this film are senior citizens, and the responsible ones are their grandchildren. The seniors all behave as if they've seen too many American gangster movies, which is very funny in the context of Danish retirement homes. The title of the film translates as "The Vacuum-cleaner Gang", and is a reference to their inventive use of an ultra-silent portable vacuum cleaner as an instrument of crime.
